Italic is perfection

The italic nibs purchased here are not only super affordable and reasonably priced they are ground with perfection. The fine and medium italic are my go to nibs and I literally want them in all my pens

Great Replacement Nib

In a sea of replacement nib options, this one stands out. It is affordable and writes great straight out of the box. It also looks good. Highly recommended!

Replacement Nib

Customer service and attention to details matter and Galen does both as well as any company I have purchased products or services from! This is a replacement nib for one that came with a pen that was less than perfect. Galen sent a replacement - no hassle, without questions. Best customer service - period!!
